A little while back, I signed up for The Pretty Pouch Swap.
Kim at Lily Patch Quilts hosted it for us, & I have received my gorgeous parcel all the way from the US... This was not a secret swap, so it was lovely to exchange a few emails with my partner Vickie, who blogs at Creative Notions.
Vickie has sent me a gorgeous parcel of Pretty... the pouch is great, see how wide it opens up... & also the co-ordinating extras... & more spoily goodies. I love the clear inside pockets!
This is the perfect size for taking in the car or on those holidays I never go on...
Thanks so much Vickie for your wonderful gifts & I hope my parcel arrives to you very soon! x
Tuesday night is Hexy Night for me... of course I just had to use the hexy-in-a-hexy fabric... it has a hint of 1970s don't you think?!
Karen is our lovely host for One Flower Wednesday... If you would like to join us, just follow the link. Karen has heaps of fab information on her blog about english paper piecing, if you are interested to give it a try...
I am really enjoying the sewing of my Christmas swap items... making quicker progress than I expected... perhaps because it's school holidays & I'm neglecting some house chores!
But sewing for swaps can be a trap... so often I find myself totally loving what I am making & want to make another for myself... thus adding to the already long Wanna-Do List. Surely I am not the only person who experiences this?!
